to in 2011. majority leader harry reid has ruled that out this time and the number two democrat durbin repeated reid's position on sunday. >> social security does not add one penny to our debt. not a penny. it's a separate funded operation and we can do things, and i believe we should, now, smaller things, played out over the longer term that gives it solvency. medicare is another story. >> there's still staff level discussions going on. and, by the way, as much as washington gets caught up in the conventional wisdom of what senators are saying, remember right now the senate are 100 ehechted pundits. the game is between the white house and house republicans for now. at some point the action could move to the senate. but right now it's about the house. it's a possibility at some point folks on capitol hill expect the white house to call another meeting of boehner, mcconnell, reid and pelosi along with the president. at some point this week. though nothing is scheduled. the first major appointment that the president makes will probably come in the next week to ten days. just two candidat
is not part of this problem. so it should not be part of the discussion. harry reid, in fact, has been extremely firm on that. he said i will not be part of discussions that include social security as part of this bargain. so if they stick to that, then they won't be. >> yeah, there's so many moving pieces. susan, today, the president's going to meet with small business owners. friday he's going to montgomery, pennsylvania, to visit a small business that will be impacted. very campaign like stuff. what's he trying to do here? >> yeah, who is he not meeting with this week? that would be congressional -- that would be members of congress, especially those house republicans would be the critical partners on this. so he's trying to take a very different approach than he took in the first term and the early go rounds on this. and that is to build some public support tap on the good feeling from his re-election to give -- as ryan pointed out. there's some democrats including powerful ones like harry reid that say medicare and medicaid have to be off the table. those democrats do not include

is sticking by her for now. she's not yet been nominated. harry reid said they believe the committees in charge chaired by john kerry should be in charge of this and not members from other committees like homeland security and intelligence and armed services who are getting involved in this. but as you pointed out, none of the republican senators asking questions chair anything. it's becoming very personal and very puzzling indeed. >> one last sort of puzzling hmt of this to me. i just want your perspective because you have reported on these issues for so long. it seems remarkable to me to have the acting director of the cia personally accompanying susan rice to that meeting today. this is not formal testimony. there was no committee of lindsey graham and john mccain. they don't run anything there. is it unusual to have the leader of the cia personally involved like this? >> it was remarkable to me. i described her on "nightly news" as her wing man. he was there to take the blame. and it did seem for an acting director of the cia to be put in that position rather extraordinary. he him

without further questioning is mind-boggling to me. >> it is interesting, senator harry reid issued a statement, saying there were personal attacks against ambassador rice. he said the a number of things. but he said, she has done nothing wrong. here's what i don't get. no one said she did anything wrong -- at least as i understand it, they are saying she didn't do her job, to ask simple question, instead of just -- as you say, parrot. but she is like a robot. so is jay carney. they repeat what they are told and they don't exercise good judgment and ask questions, saying how do you know that? why do you know that? if they did ask the questions, we ought to know. it is not that they are bad people. but they don't have good judgment to ask questions. >> look, there are basically two ways you can perform in the government at a senior level. you can be the tool of you're bureaucracy. i have known secretaries of state that i would put in that category, or you can be a real policy leader that. frequently means, it inevitably means questioning and challenging what the bureaucracy serves up

boehner nor senate majority leader harry reid. senator, when are the democrats going to be talking about the hard decisions? >> alex, that is a very important point and i heard ed rendell refer to it a few minutes ago if your conversation. we all know that there is three parts to solving this problem. there is cutting expenditures, there are entitlements and there are revenue. democrats on the joint select committee that i chaired a year ago, could put serious proposals on that on the table. why we couldn't come to an agreement the republicans refused to put revenue on the table. they do that now, do it responsibly, fairly do it in a real way, then yes, we all know that we have to participate in some tough discussions and are willing to do that. but not until we get that piece that republicans have refused to put on the table so far, which is the revenue, mparticularly o the wealthy. >> governor rendell the senator channeled your name. i will direct this to you. when we talk about the conversation around entitlement reform. i think there's confusion in the american public about what prog

or otherwise water down president obama's agenda. democrats have had it. majority leader harry reid has been a senate institutionalist for years and he's changed his mind. now he says he wants to change the rule for filibusters when the new senate convenes in january. president obama has signaled today he's on board, too. filibuster is badly needed. there is a problem, however. the rules changes the democrats have in mind really won't change anything at all. the first idea is to get rid of the fill bust other what's called the motion to proceed. what does that mean? it means a bill could only be filibustered once it's debated on the floor. not when snares are deciding whether to bring it to the floor. there's nothing wrong with this idea but even if adopted it will take 60 votes to pass anything in the senate. democrats' other idea is to force real talking filibusters. if republicans want a filibuster something they have to do it in the open, hold the floor, talk for hours on end, like the old days. supposedly this will shine the light on obstructionism. cause an uproar and cause the gop to
ceiling. now harry reid is calling to combine the two saying that any budget deal must also include an increase in the country's borrowing powers. the white house's official stance that john boehner will have to raise the debt ceiling but so far president obama is not requiring the two deals to happen simultaneously. more bill coming up. we'll be right back. alright, in 15 minutes we're i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know that i'm going to be the first one to call them out. they can question whether i'm right, but i think that the audience gets that this guy, to the best of his ability, is trying to look out for us.
